The world of Hollywood cinema is not a place where viewers expect to have encounters with God. However, a new blockbuster film, which is set to hit theaters on March 23rd, will impact each and every viewer with the true presence of Christ.
The movie, "Paul, Apostle of Christ" is a complete masterpiece. Recently, Faith Family America was invited to attend the red carpet screening of the movie in Dallas. The film chronicles the final days of Paul's life from his prison cell. Paul, played by veteran actor James Faulkner, shares his life story with Luke, played by Jim Caviezel.
The film is already having a dramatic effect on the world by bringing people closer to Jesus. The cinematography is so good that even a non-believer would be entertained and amazed at the story and scenes. However, through that amazement, non-believers are coming to experience an amazing encounter with Jesus.
The film is a story of redemption, of suspense, action, adventure, love, hope, and salvation. It is the exact movie needed in Hollywood.
James Faulkner opened up about the film in an interview about his character, Paul.
"If you're playing a man of extraordinary strength, a man that has endured the most obscene hardships. Who was stoned by his fellow man twice, and shipwrecked twice, and scourged, and flogged so much so that his spine is twisted from the torture that he's undergone, and to still love your fellow human being, and to still be able to forgive them... that of course changes you," Faulkner told CBN News.
He also mentioned how the film has completely changed him as a person.
"I was entirely transported by his life; and I transformed as an individual, of that I'm certain. I was transformed by it. I'm not going to say that I'm a better man for playing it because I don't know that I am, and I don't know that I will be able to maintain it. But yes, I know what betterness is and I'm reminded of it very strongly by playing Paul. And I hope that I live a better life subsequent of playing him," said Faulkner, in an interview with CBN.
We strongly encourage you to go see this movie. By telling everyone you know about the film, and financially supporting it yourself, more films like this can be made. Throughout movies like this, countless people are experiencing Jesus.
